  Payment methods listed at
  ttc.lacounty.gov/Proptax/PaymentMethod.htm
  
  Annual real estate property tax bills are mailed in  October and may include personal property taxes.  The first installment is due Nov. 1 and  becomes delinquent if payment is not received by 5 p.m. or United States Postal Service (USPS) postmarked  by Dec. 10.  The second installment is  due Feb. 1 and becomes delinquent if payment is not received by 5 p.m. or USPS postmarked by April  10.  Payments for current year taxes can  be made online using VCheck.  This  payment option is free of charge.  For  more information, go to lacountypropertytax.com.  Taxpayers can also use MasterCard, VISA, or  American Express to pay property taxes by telephone.  To use this service, call (888) 473-0835.  A service fee will be charged by the third  party vendor to utilize this service and a processing fee will be charged for  any credit card payment that is dishonored or reversed for any reason.
  
  Through its third party notification  program, the Tax Collector lets taxpayers choose a person or an agency to  receive a copy of any notice that is sent regarding taxes that are in  default.  While the third parties are not  responsible for paying the bill, they can remind the property owners to pay the  defaulted taxes or to take action to prevent them from losing their property in  a tax auction.  Senior citizens, those  with language limitations, and others who require special assistance are among  those who may benefit from this program.
  
  Non-residential-commercial  properties with three years or more in default (arrears) become subject to sale  at public auction.  Residential or  agricultural property with five or more years in default become subject to sale  at a public auction.  If the property has  defaulted taxes, a notation will be printed on the annual tax bill in the pink  box.  Non- residential-commercial  properties with less than three years in default and residential or  agricultural property with less than five years in default may be eligible for  a payment plan.  Persons receiving such a  notation on their tax bills should contact the Tax Collector immediately.
  
  Information and assistance is also available regarding property  tax postponement and assistance programs for eligible senior, blind, or  disabled citizens on their principal place of residence.  These programs are administered by the State  of California.  For more information, call (800) 952-5661 or  visit the State Controller’s Office at sco.ca.gov.

Property Tax Internet Portal Website

  The property tax Internet portal  provides taxpayers with information about property taxes from four property tax  departments (Assessor, Auditor-Controller, Treasurer and Tax Collector, and  Assessment Appeals Board).  Through this  site, taxpayers are provided with one-stop answers to basic questions about  assessment, taxation and appeal matters.   Links to the individual websites of each of the four departments are  also included.
  
  Information  System (PROPTAX)
